EPA/OCSPP RIN: 2070-AK50 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Review of Dust-Lead Post-Abatement Clearance Levels 

Addressing childhood lead exposure is a priority for EPA. EPA is considering changes to the dust-lead clearance levels (DLCL) following the recent changes to the dust-lead hazard standards (DLHS). Specifically, EPA published a final rule on July 9, 2019 (RIN 2070-AJ82) to change the DLHS from 40 µg/ft2 and 250 µg/ft2 to 10 µg/ft2 and 100 µg/ft2 on floors and window sills, respectively. These standards apply to most pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities, such as day care centers and kindergarten facilities. In that final rule, EPA indicated it would review the DLCL at a later date.
